This weekend, Dean avoided the busy crowds of the Air and Water Show. Instead he wanted a more intimate perspective so he checked in with Capt. Benjamin Fizzell…from the cockpit! Capt. Fizzell is also the grandson of WGN favorite, Jim Fizzell, who introduced Benjamin to the show as a child and he recounts seeing the show from the beach and now from the cockpit.
